According to information from the Colorado Department of Transportation, CDOT, traffic fatalities have increased by 24 percent since 2014. In fact, in 2016 there were 605 traffic fatalities in the state compared to just 547 in 2015. Not only has the instance of fatalities due to auto accidents increased, but the prevalence of auto accidents has also increased. —
In an effort to help victims of car accident injuries, Colorado Springs car accident lawyer, Doug Allen, has released new information about what accident victims should do after being involved in any type of collision.
“For more than two decades, I have been helping victims of car accidents and seen quite a few mistakes that are made after this event,” stated Colorado Springs auto accident attorney Doug Allen. “Being informed, knowing what to do, and more importantly what not to do, after a collision is the best way for any victim to protect their right to recover compensation.”
According to the information, there are six things accident victims need to do after being involved in a collision. These things include remaining calm and not admitting fault, remaining safe, calling the authorities, exchanging information with the other party or parties involved, photographing the scene and injuries, and calling an attorney.
“Unfortunately, if someone admits fault, it can be used against them when filing a personal injury lawsuit,” continued Allen. “If you learn what to do and what to avoid saying, you can receive compensation for the injuries and damages you incurred, and I can help. While not all accident lawsuits are cut and dry, when victims follow my suggestions, they have a much better chance of receiving a fair amount of compensation.”
